Get baking for cake contest
Cake mixtures are being stirred all across CHB as contestants prepare for the iced and uniced Christmas cake class of the Open Baking Section at the CHB A&P Show on Saturday, November 10.
Entry to the baking section is free, and classes include iced chocolate cake and savoury scone, all of which will be cut and tasted by the judges on the day. Cakes will also be judged on their presentation. Scones need to be presented on a sandwich plate.
